Gate Operators/Garage Door Openers

September 11, 2020


Updated September 1, 2019

If you or your company installs garage door openers or electronic gate openers and performs no other activities regulated by Texas Occupations Code, Chapter 1702, it is not necessary for you to be licensed by DPS. This includes installers of operators for gates and residential or commercial garage or upward-acting doors, as well as accessories used only to activate the gates and doors in a convenient manner (for example, wall-mounted push buttons, radio transmitters, keypads and card readers).

However, the installation of a gate or garage/upward-acting door operator that is connected to an alarm system or that allows for monitoring or logging of ingress/egress does require a license.
